AKA Klages. A grain that has 2 rows along the seed head. 2 row malt has more starch per unit of weight than 6 row. 2L6 row -
A grain that has 6 rows along the seed head. There is more husk weight in 6 row than in 2 row. 2LPilsner -
A pale malt with a sweeter flavor than 2 row malt. It produces a smoother and less grainy flavored beer. 1LWheat -
The malt used for many wheat beers. Can be added to non wheat beers in small quantities to add to the head retention properties. 1.8-2.8L
Briess is simply a brand name.
